Quote from: krummholz on March 17, 2023, 09:01:54 AMWe lost power for about 90 minutes on Tuesday. There was no wind, it was due to the weight of about 35 cm of heavy, wet snow (at that point) on branches and power lines. The owner of the local deli told me that her power went out immediately after a nearby power transformer exploded.

But it didn't stop snowing... in the end we received about half a meter in all, over roughly 36 hours. Since the mercifully brief Tuesday outage, our power has been steady.
That's a lot of snow!  Glad that the power didn't stay out for very long.

I went on a moderately long walk yesterday while doing some errands and noticed a number of large tree branches that had come down--including one which whilst the tree was in the strip next to the road, the branch came down on a homeowner's chain link fence.  The fence was the worse for the wear.  :(

I'm hoping March will indeed go out like a lamb. It's likely to be a soggy lamb, though.

In Vermont, March pretty much always goes out like it comes in... like a lion.

Yep, I was just shopping with a friend; he was looking for some sort of mud boots (to use to go to his woodpile).  Alas they didn't have his size in the pair that he was interested in.  Some of those boots get quite pricey!

Ah, but you also have that fifth season:  "Mud Season".  :)  ;)

Yep! But that typically overlaps with winter, and then continues well into (astronomical) Spring. :)
